It's Tuesday and you know what that sometimes means - time for a giveaway! Today's contest is especially appropriate given yesterday's announcement. I hope you enjoy! (P.S. This is my last 'baby' themed post for a while I totally promise. I'll be back with another pretty amazing post - if I do say so myself - on Thursday - with pictures, lots of pictures.)
Hi Everyone! I'm Renee and I run the Etsy shop Blue Monkeey. Blue Monkeey is named for my daughter whose favorite color is blue and whose nickname is 'Monkey'.
First I would like to thank Lauren for giving me this opportunity and for thinking of me for her Tuesday giveaway series! A very brief overview of how Blue Monkeey came to be - I left the world of sales when my daughter made an early debut (by 6 weeks) 3 years ago and became a Stay at Home Mom. As my little baby started to grow hair I started buying her clips...As she got older (and was able to speak) she suddenly had an opinion on the clips and wanted them to match her outfit (example: she had a hedgehog on her shirt, had to have a hedgehog hair clip). If the clip did not match she would not wear it.
Fast forward a bit - After getting tired of buying clips I decided to figure out how to make them myself. Soon I was making them for my daughter and family. My daughter started pre-school this year and I started getting compliments on her hair clips. After some encouragement and support from family and some positive feedback from her classmates' moms, I decided to try selling them at her school's holiday craft fair as well as opening up an Etsy shop and they were a huge hit!
Thanks Renee! Isn't her stuff awesome? (And SO affordable - most of her clips are under $3.50). I pretty much wanted to buy thirty clips for myself when I first ran across her shop but Ryan was NOT all about that idea. But now that I am having a small child I can totally stock up on hair clips. Boys wear them too right? I know my brother Davis did at least....though that might have been because he had four older sisters and we needed another pursuit after we got bored with painting his nails and draping his neck with feather boas....
Come to think of it I do remember my dad coming home from work and not being entirely pleased about Davisina's striking ensembles. Hmmmm.
Anyway, her prize is fantastic and enormously suited to summer but I also wanted to show off some of my other favorites from Blue Monkeey.
